    Supernatural-Primal Character

    I want to write a new novel. Vampires died with Lestat, werewolves have always been boring, fairies are wussy, angels and demons have been done to death, and zombies, whilst humorous and terrifying, have saturated the market. What would your supernatural-primal hero/heroine look like/act like? P.S. I'm extremely lazy and most likely won't write this, but it's a fun exercise for the imagination.

    In all seriousness, satyrs. From Wikipedia (because I'm lazy)
    About Satyrs, Praxiteles gives a new interpretation on the subject of free and carefree life. Instead of an elf with pointed ears and repulsive goat hooves, we face a child of nature, pure, but tame and fearless and brutal instincts necessary to enable it to defend itself against threats, and survives even without the help of modern civilization . Above all though, the Satyr with flute has a small companion for him, shows the deep connection with nature, the soft whistle of the wind, the sound of gurgling water of the crystal spring, the birds singing, or perhaps the singing a melody of a human soul that feeds higher feelings. As Dionysiac creatures they are lovers of wine and women, and they are ready for every physical pleasure. They roam to the music of pipes (auloi), cymbals, castanets, and bagpipes, and they love to dance with the nymphs (with whom they are obsessed, and whom they often pursue), and have a special form of dance called sikinnis.

    This is actually funny! I a currently writing a novel and had the idea of having my character be a supernatural primal character. Here's what I have, currently, power is to control the elements, looks more or less regular like any one would in today's age. I guess the question is: how would you think you primal character should look?

    I haven't go too in-depth about the character being primal, it was just an idea that I started pondering at the end of my last chapter.

    Rasputina, if you want to get an idea for a villian for your novel, watch the last season of Supernatural. It's kind of hilarious in a gruesome sort of way. And I like it because it feeds my paranoia about why our food sources are actually blatantly becoming poisoned.

    Last season of Supernatural (tv show) was great. Loved the casual discussion about HFCS being in almost all American foods, and how technically its not a chemical but all natural, so it can be promoted as healthy. LOL.

    In terms of appearance, for a female I think she would have to be an amazon woman. Defined muscles, strong, healthy hair and skin. For a dude, no bodybuilder types, just lean and muscular. Endurance might be handy for ex. being in a starvation situation while climbing up a mountain or crossing thru a jungle, where the "enemies" are physically getting weaker, feeling faint, cognitive issues, etc, though the primal character remains strong or even eats native fruits/hunts animals. Would be cool if character was Macgyver like and use objects/resources that are local for fighting or problem-solving.

    Well he would have to be bullet proof, be hyper due to being in ketosis and having way too much caffien, keep making references to his exception functional fitness and will get the rage if any-one suggests he is on a low carb diet

    Mine's a gryphon. Can't get much more primal than a carnivore, right?
